Derek Acorah leads tributes as TV medium Colin Fry dies aged 53
TV medium Colin Fry has died at the age of 53.
The spiritualist, who appeared on Most Haunted, Psychic Private Eyes and 6ixth Sense With Colin Fry, was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in April this year.
His manager David Hahn said: "He had a very big heart.
"Since the diagnosis, he'd been very upbeat. Because of what he does he had no fear of death. He often told me he had no fear of dying."
A statement on his official website said: "It is with much sadness and regret to announce that the Reverend Colin Fry, Britain's most loved and respected Spiritualist Medium, lost his fight against cancer and passed away peacefully in hospital in the early hours at 2:50am this morning.
"Colin brought a lot of comfort to his audiences in a career which spanned for more than 30 years. Our sympathies and condolences go out to Colin's family and friends.
"We, as his management, for many years would like to add that he was the most charming man with the biggest heart, who devoted his life to helping others, and he will be sorely missed ."
Fry, who was a Reverend of The Spiritualist Church, had to cancel his The 6ixth Sense Anniversary Tour earlier this year upon learning of his diagnosis.
Fellow medium Derek Acorah led the tributes on Twitter.
He wrote: "It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of my dear friend Colin Fry. Condolences to his family and friends."
